Because Metalheads Shouldn't Have To Wait Until Aug. 9
For those wanting to get a jump on the Frisco-only Ozzfest, Metallica--which is making its Ozzfest debut at this year's one-off--has made its May 14 show from the Wiltern Theatre in El Lay available as a download. And, yup, it's a pay-fer, course, but for a good cause.
The show was a benefit for the Silverlake Conservatory of Music, and all dough raised from the sale of the downloads--$9.95 for those into the MP3; $12.95 for those who like the FLAC--will go to the school as well. --Robert Wilonsky
